Unfold the Future: the forest fibre industry nominated Report of the Year

 

CEPI's 2050 Roadmap has been nominated in the category Report of the Year at the European Public Affairs Awards. Now in their fifth year, the awards highlight success and encourage best practice throughout the European public affairs community; bringing recognition to individuals, organisations, issues and campaigns. Nominations launch in June and organisations throughout the profession are eligible to nominate both internally and externally until Friday 21 September 2012. Voting opens when the shortlist is announced in October and is open to all individuals working for an organisation listed on the Transparency Register and/or listed in the EPAD Directory.

The results of this year's awards will be announced during the awards dinner on Wednesday 14 November held at the stunning Albert Hall.

CEPI's report is competing with the Environmental Sustainability Report from FoodDrinkEurope and Women on Boards in Europe: from a snail’s pace to a giant leap from The European Women’s Lobby.

The awards provide the following explanation for nominating the Roadmap:
It's not often that a publication by a Brussels trade association causes a stir. The CEPI 2050 Roadmap has. It is frequently used as an example by policy makers, both at the European Commission and in the Parliament. The process of engaging stakeholders and industry representatives was also innovative and much appreciated by the target audiences. The report has united the paper industry internally and given them incentives to think about the future in positive terms.

The final document was supported by a dedicated website and a special Facebook page. The CEPI 2050 roadmap inspired many of CEPI's national members to start their own national roadmap for 2050. It has influenced board meetings in all member countries and many companies in the paper industry sector. Many other industry associations in Brussels are now working on similar reports.

A unique opportunity to meet suitable partners for your projects
Participants will be given the opportunity to present their project ideas or institutional research capacities, as well as to give feedback, support, and supplement each other’s ideas. Such events are often starting points for building consortia and core planning teams in order to submit research and innovation proposals at a later stage. Additionally, participants are invited to present and discuss ideas and proposals for COST Actions. This year's event will explicitly address invitations to industry and stakeholders from other sectors.

Who should participate?
All forest, forestry and forest-based sector related researchers from European Union Member States, Associated countries (Norway, Iceland, Israel etc.) and from third countries (Switzerland, Montenegro, Albania etc.) as they can fully participate in Horizon 2020 projects and the COST Programme.

Representatives from…:

companies (large, small or medium-sized)
federations and associations
universities
private or public research institutes
public bodies,

…interested in participating in research projects and/or COST Actions are welcome to this partnering event. The activities, competences and interest can range from forest ecology, climate change and forest management to forest-based products and forest-based industry processes including the timber industry, building with wood, the pulp and paper industry and biorefinery.

Invitations will be sent at the beginning of September and registration will open on 9 September 2014.

Related industry event PTS Paper & Board Symposium 2016 06 Sep. 2016 | 09:00 - 07 Sep. 2016 | 17:00 | Munich, Germany


The PTS Paper & Board Symposium (September 6-7, 2016 at Leonardo Royal Hotel in Munich) will be one of the highlights among the events offered to paper producers and converters this autumn. The paper industry is in a period of transition. This makes it particularly important to keep abreast of the sector’s latest developments and innovations.

Our sector is faced with a multitude of different challenges and tasks: The Internet of Things is changing the whole face of our value chain and the future of paper both as consumer good and material needs to be redefined. We are all directly affected by these developments, and need to act to innovatively shape our sector’s future.

Focus will be on five sessions:

Session 1: Shaping the future with paperbased products
Session 2: Printing in the digitised future
Session 3: Food Packaging: Safety first!
Session 4: Industry 4.0: BEYOND automation TOWARDS digitization
Session 5: Innovative technologies and products in the manufacturing of paper and board

The PTS Paper & Board Symposium 2016 will be supported by partners from the trade associations of paper and board producers and converters VDP, HPV and WPV, as well as by the supplier companies represented by the Paper Technology Research Association (FPT).
